Last year, in an effort to truly get the message of Libyan women heard, we hosted the first ever International Women’s Conference during November 11 – 15th 2011. The conference proved to be phenomenally successful, bringing together over 150 women from all over Libya, who ultimately made 22 recommendations to the NTC in areas such as political participation of women, economic empowerment of women, and social and education improvement. Former Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Gibril, current Libyan Prime Minister Abdulrahim El Keib, and the Chairman of the National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdul Jaleel all attended, and remained in attendance for nearly four hours, during which they were questioned about previous comments and decisions made in regards to women. Nearly 25 other members of the NTC were also present, although the Ministries had not yet been assigned at this point. International guest speakers included Her Excellency Catherine Ashton, as well as Ian Martin, SRSG of the UNSMIL, and the Director of Human Rights Watch International – Women’s Division, Liesl Gerntholz.The official First Announcement and Call for Papers for One Voice 2012: New Horizons will be announced August 28th 2012.Registration for Speakers will open August 28th 2012 and remain open until
